My Friend Rosalind is Gone

Posted on August 18, 2011 at 6:48pm 0 Comments

I just lost my best friend who was like a little sister to me. Her name is Rosalind. I had talked with her on August 11, 2011 and we ended our conversation with "I will talk to you tomorrow."  The next day she passed away while serving in the kitchen at her church.  My little sister loved the Lord and she was so happy doing the work of hospitality for the church.  She loved God, her church, pastor and wife and people. We always talked about the goodness of God and she knew that she had Favor…

Hold On To God

Posted on July 15, 2011 at 10:40pm 0 Comments

Hello, and I hope all of you are doing only what you can do for this day.  God is good and without Him we can do nothing.  Hold on to God's unchanging Hand.  We cannot see what's up the road, but God can and when we stay connected to Him, we find peace in the midst of the storm.  The storm is boisterous and we can become afraid, but don't let go of your faith.  Hold on and know that God is riding with you in the storm.  He'll be there with you when you feel that nobody else is there.  And when… Continue

The Master's Plan

Posted on July 10, 2011 at 5:27pm 0 Comments

I wrote this poem during the grieving of my Mother's death.  Within this poem was God's answer to my question.

 

                 THE MASTER'S PLAN

Mom softly called me on the phone one day

Come go with me, help me prepare for my going away.

We quietly picked her casket, dusty rose and pink

Her makeup she wanted done by Johnny her godson.

She asked me to type her program - the Order of Service plan

The songs to be sung, the scripture to be…

Hello dear lady
I e joyed reading your heartfelt words about your sister. It sounds like you had a close loving relationship. I feel this way about my sister. I desire to give you my deep condolence. We never know when the sting of death will overtake us yet there is a beautiful hope for our loved ones which helps us make the next step and the next day. I often think of Jesus words of a guarentee of a resurrection at John 5:28,29. This helps me to endure the pain of losing my loved ones. I hope to communicate with you I. This page soon.
Thank you for opening your heart to us and helping us see your sister thru your eyes
May you have peace
Denise

Hey Dianne, to answer you question, I'm not sure. My dad committed suicide when I was 7 and I'm not 32, and I still have times where I'm angry over it for the fact he took himself out of my life, and now he's missing out on his grandkids life. I know everyone deals with grief differently, some would probably tell you to deal with it and get over it, but I say yes you have the right to still be angry. I know there are times that I am. Thanks for reaching out. There aren't many people I can talk to about all this cause they just don't understand.

Hey Dianne, I don't know if you remember me, but I sure do remember you.  You gave me inspiration and I prayed about it.  Now, today is Survivors of Suicide Day.  I think of my friend who committed suicide some time ago now, but I will never forget trying to get his attention "and I could see right through him.  I mean he was on empty and help didn't come soon enough.

Dianne- Hi, I just read amessg. you posted to Linda G. Re: her husband Neal & what she should be doing with her life now & I think you are a blessing! Reading that messg. made me feel good also knowing that God's love is being shared & lifting people up even while those same people are grieving. It's like one of my on-going prayers "to be blessed so that I will be a blessing to others"- that' you! Sending up a prayer for you today in Jesus' name-Hugs, Christy

Dianne,  thank you so much for your words.  Everyone of them are so true.  It is such a coincident that what you said about mine and Neal's love.  At his funeral I spoke and part of what I said was that Neal & mine's life together was a love story and even though he was gone, our love would continue through our sons and their families.  I have let God into my life more since Neal has been gone and I pray to him to show me what he has in store for me.  I know he will, I just have to listen good.  Only in the last 2 to 3 months has my mind been coming out of the blur it has been in since Neal died.  It is like reality hit me and I know Neal is gone.  I have started to try to eat better and last week I started doing some cleaning.  So even though it has only been almost 15 months, I am trying to deal with things day to day.  Thank you again for your words and not 2012 is NOT going to suck me in, God is by my side.  Hugs

Wow that just made me snap out of it! He wasn't really a friend for four years he just used me and the secrecy was to protect himself! He did have a sickness and he was a loser who only wanted sex! I guess I am wasting my time mourning but the times we did have were good ones. Imaybe I am just jealous that he got to die and I am still here living with the secret! Thanks for helping me but I think I am okay now I am over it!

I dont know if you got my reply or not? I guess I am just alone out here! Who i thought was a great friend may not have even liked me maybe he just went through the motions! I am soo confused and will never know but after 4 years of being his friend i should have known he was attached to someone? I just dont know:(

I am doing better! Our friendship was a secret so I will never know what happened to him. I have a lot of mixed emotions like how could he leave me behind and really dont have anyone to talk to about it I am mourning by myself and it really is making me crazy inside! Does died unexpectedly while at work mean suicide, heart attack or accident? Did he suffer for long? I have all these questions that are unanswered. Thank you for being my friend! I hope this is confidential
